I may be naive, but I think Victor's problem is that he is too innocent and childlike, if anything.
The real perverts tend to fly under the radar.
I think it was the clown that changed the tone in here.

I never said that. That was my poorly put way of saying that I don't claim that he's in perfect mental health - but that these accusations/speculation is just OTT.
I disagree that they are accusations or speculations on my part.... they are just possibilities.
I could make the same argument that trying to type Victor without his consent was an accusation and speculation as well, but you don't consider those over-the-top. What's stopping you from considering mental disorders as an answer? Obviously something puts up a slammed door there.
I don't see stigmas, I just see what's there. If I'm an alcoholic, I'm an alcoholic. If I have a mental disorder, I have one. To those with a studied eye, there are no secrets. I can't hide myself from some.

Gosh, @Salome is cranky today. Wait...she's always cranky...
Psst... Don't forget the accent mark. It's Salomé. Otherwise, she won't get your Mentions.

Still I can see where someone's feelings would be quite hurt by something like this. It's a little ridiculous, in my opinion. I've seen so much worse than Victor.
I meant about requesting other members to be banned - did you find that to be an adequate response? I simply want to know.
This thread is getting a bit weird, frankly. Like that song from Disney's Beauty and the Beast where the whole town sings about how odd Belle is.
Some responses here are kinda mean... And we had to jam Fe/Fi there, too. I don't "get" Victor's writing a lot of the time, but I don't think that means he's BSing...
(Also, Marm, what makes you think Vic is Fi? I could see Ti in his writing, I think...)
I should have said "I believe" or some other such modifier that he has been to group therapy and/or substance abuse rehab. He uses that vocabulary and is very attached to certain ideas phrased in certain ways.
I don't think anything wrong at all if someone has been to AA or group therapy. It was not my intent to say anything bad about him in that respect. I forget there's still stigma attached. What I wanted to say was, he is not an original genius. I can see where he gets many of his ideas. They are not original and don't reflect genius. That's not to say they are not worthy.
Ok, I'm sick of qualifying everything. Use your own judgment and I don't care anymore.
My experience of Victor is someone who jumps up shouting slogans in the middle of an unrelated conversation. It won't sound like that to you if you haven't been exposed to the slogans, but I have, so I can tell you, it's not genius. He's well-versed in certain areas and he's repeating those ideas. He's extremely attached to those ideas above any other ideas. They don't appear to me as genius because I know where he got them.
Are ya with me now?
P.S. I never said anything ever about "sex offender." I don't know where you're getting that, but please don't attribute it to me! or show me where I said whatever led you to believe I think that.
